Second - not even a table cloth on the table. Third, sandwiches were ice cold (obviously kept in a fridge and not made fresh). Fourth,tea pot had more...

We arrived at the restaurant 5 minutes earlier than our pre-booked time and were told not to expect to be allowed to order for at least 20 mins! No welcome to our restaurant. You couldn't make it up. We went to the bar on our first night but were told it is table service only. Second night being in the...

I'm a regular visitor here due to my head office being located in the Borders and after 7 years of traveling up here I can guarantee it's by far the best hotel in the area. Nice courteous staff, most on reception remember me by name and the food is delicious. Rooms are spacious and my only issue is the giant...

Spent the night for an Abba tribute event. Lovely room with terrific comfy bed, bath and separate shower etc. Lovely food at tribute night but only two girls in the Abba tribute band !!!!! A number of folk not happy about that. It was still a highly entertaining evening. Good fun largely due to the mixed company at the table...

So just back from the Cardrona Hotel. My daughter (12) and I had a lovely swim then had booked into Renwicks for lunch. What a let down! Arrived a few minutes early for a 1.30 p.m. Reservation, the person who I assume was the restaurant manager was not expecting us. Ten minutes later shown to a table in an empty...

Having stayed previously at that hotel with her sister my wife took me there for my birthday. What a pleasant surprise! We stayed 5 days and walked the trails in and around Cardrona and Peebles. We got an upgraded room with views on the golf course and surrounding countryside. Breakfast was very good with a wide selection of food and...
